Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in helping other women improve their living situations. Our future homeowners are largely comprised of women and children whose living conditions may be unsafe, unhealthy, unaffordable, or over-crowded.

Help us renovate a 110-year-old home located at 172 Concord Street in Holliston. This 2 story, 3-bedroom single family home with 1 ½ baths is located on a .5 acre parcel and will provide an affordable home in a safe community for a local family.  

Your involvement makes a huge difference helping our homeowners achieve a more stable and secure life.

Your contribution helps give women and families the opportunity to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance. Through shelter, we empower.
